Juan Elcano Looks a Solid Bet for the Denford Stakes

This Saturday over at the Newbury racecourse is of course the day when the Denford Stakes race is going to be run, and there is one horse that looks all set up for that race and is going to take all the beating too and that is of course the highly talented Juan Elcano.

With the sheer volume of money that has already been bet on that horse on the ante post betting markets, this morning the very best odds I have seen being offered on it from a handful of bookies are odds of 5/4 however everything taken into account those odds are fair and reasonable to say the least.

It is impossible to make a case for any of the other horses running in the Denford Stakes race this year and as such if you are looking for a banker this weekend that you should be laying your money down right now on Juan Elcano.

In fact, there is a very good chance that if the betting continues as it has already been doing you will probably find the horse goes off with a starting price of even money or even odds-on so the onus really is on you to place your bets Juan Elcano as soon as you possibly can do to secure those odds of 5/4 right now.

What Can You Expect Each-Way Betting?

Being the type of race, it is, the Denford Stakes is one on which you are going to finds some fairly industry standard each-way betting terms, and as such do not expect to be offered true valued each-way betting terms.

The terms all bookies are going to be offering you are one fifth the win odds being paid out to three places too, but as is always the case do a little bit of hunting around if you are planning on betting each-way as you may strike gold and find a bookie offering better terms than those, but don’t hold your breath when doing so.

Any Other Horses worth a Punt?

Racing wouldn’t be racing if many punters didn’t have a different opinion as to just which horse they feel has the very best chances of winning a race such as the Denford Stakes, and you may be on the mindset that the favourite isn’t going to win this year.

With that in mind allow me to quickly run through the next horses listed on the betting markets but only those that have single digit odds attached to them, as they are going to be the only ones that have a fair chance of beating the favourite with a  great deal of luck in running of course.

Sun Power is the current second favourite and will probably go off second favourite too and the best odds currently up for grabs on it are around the 3/1 mark, then you have Thunderous who is a 4/1 shot, followed by Wyclif at 11/2 and then two horses that are chalked up at odds of 9/1 are Pyledriver and Sesame Birah
